My husband and I went there for 3 nights after Christmas to explore the Humboldt Redwood State Park and the Inn is a nice place, but they try to sell themselves as something special and they really are not. It seemed that older people really enjoyed it more, not sure why. The rooms were clean and its really quiet there, so you'll get a good night sleep. The breakfast was also very good and the service was outstanding.
But the bar was overpriced and so was the restaurant and I am not even sensitive to prices.
Overall I would say it is a good choice for a stay, but don't get your expectations up too much. Going to the Humboldt State Park takes you about 25 minutes drive, so it is acceptable.
